Before bed each night, I read my kids each a book. It's one of my favorite parts of the night. We all get down on the floor and each of my children pick out a story. Many times, my kids pick out the book Pinkalicious by Victoria and Elizabeth Kann. It's the story of a girl who eats too many pink cupcakes and turns pink herself. In honor of our favorite time of the day, I made a special Pinkalicious lunch!
This lunch is complete with the pink cupcakes and pink peonies (in the yogurt). I made this in an Easy Lunch Boxes container. Remember to follow me on all my social media channels. You can easily do that by using the buttons on the right!
